Date + time of Birth-June 30th at 3:37pm
Username (real name)-krisalee(Kristie) Edd- July 5
Baby Name + Sex- Hope Elizabeth Grace- but we're calling her Ellie
Gestational age- 39 weeks, 2 days
Weight + Length- 7 lbs, 15 oz & 20 inches
Arrival details + weblink to photos or birthstory etc- On June 3rd, our oldest son was diagnosed with leukemia. This news quickly changed our planned homebirth as we found out that we could store the baby's cord blood free of charge if we had a hospital birth. Ellie was born with an extra long cord that provided TONS of cordblood for her big brother, and someday could be his cure. The birth itself was wonderful- not what I expected at all from a hospital birth. She's perfect and beautiful!

39 weeks 4 days

arrival details: delivered via c-section & he is just perfect . After a consult & u/s with the perinatologist, it was decided due to his size that the safest delivery would be by c-section to avoid shoulder dystocia, etc.

Username: CAmum
EDD: July 8th
Baby Name + Sex: Malcolm Porter.....boy
Gestational age: 39 weeks 6 days
Weight + Length: 9 lbs even, 21 inches

Had early labor all day Tues (was still able to do stuff with my older kids). Got 3 hours of sleep that night before a very painful contraction woke me at 1am Wed. Headed to hospital at 2am. Had my little boy in my arms by 7:43am. It was a very pleasant labor and birth overall. Little babies are so, so, so beautiful and yummy.

Mum to DD (5), DS (3), and Baby #3 due in July. Sharing this adventure with DH .
